Christmas is merry, but what’s merry without shopping! You already might have purchased many gifts for your loved and dear ones but may not know what to purchase for your family members or friends who were the geeks of 1980s. Well, let me try to help you with this list of vintage gadgets.

Apple IIc:
You may have a latest Apple Macbook for as much as $999. But the classic Apple IIc from Apple that was launched in 1984 will be something that you may want to buy to surprise your geek pals. And how much do you think this 7.5 pounds vintage MacBook costs? Just around $15 to $40.

Commodore 64
This was most popular PC that was used by many geeks of 1980s. This PC taught the ABCs’ of programming to many of today’s successful programmers. The cost can be around $10 to $40 – but the major constraint will be to find it.

TI-99/4A
I was very disappointed to find this in the list of Top 10 Worst PCs of All time from PC World. This was released by Texas Instruments in 1981 at a price of $525. Today you can expect it buy at $10 to $30.

Atari 800XL
My list would definitely be incomplete without Atari 800XL. This was the third of the Atari-8 bit home computer version released by Atari in 1983.
